Tokai League Division 2
Round 8 of the Tokai League Division 2 season on Sunday was full of shocks, with only Mind House TC's home win over Konica Minolta Toyokawa going to form, as Konica are now without a victory in four games. But top of the table Honda Suzuka lost for the first time this season, 2-0 to promoted team Morishin's FC, who move third on goal difference in a cramped mid-table. Second place Kasugai Club were also beaten by Fuyo Club, who move out of the relegation zone as a result, and FC Kawasaki kick-started their season in dramatic fashion with a 5-1 trouncing of Nagoya Club.

Tohoku League Division 2 (North)
Division 2 (North) of the Tohoku League continues to be led by FC Akita Cambiare, who on Sunday claimed their sixth straight win of the year and already have a foot in next season's Division 1. It is difficult to compare progress in this division due to the fact that while teams such as Cambiare and second-placed Mizusawa United Club have played six matches, Hokuto Bank's draw on Saturday with Fuji Club 2003 was only their second fixture of the year. As such, Aster Aomori were picking up their first win of 2006 against Vanrarure Hachinohe and Fuji Club must be considered in danger of relegation, as they lie just one point above Hokuto despite having played three more games.
